Five students from different social groups, a princess (Molly Ringwald), a jock (Emilio Estevez), a brain (Anthony Michael Hall), a criminal (Judd Nelson), and a basket case (Ally Sheedy), are sentenced to Saturday detention together. Emotions are bared. Nasty things said and regrated. By the end, they're friends and have grown up.
Judd Nelson's character is the catalyst for the interaction and the subsequent change. Without his disturbances, none of them would talk to each other. He is vital. Everyone notice that he disappeared.
John Hughes regulars make emotional appearances. Nice to see them. To join them we have 80's hotty Emilio Estevez and mysterious Ally Sheedy to freshen things up and to be amazing.
The whole thing is amazing. I love it. John Hughes has created yet another reminder why we have to pass through puberty and learn not to be complete little shits all of our lives.
Watch this when you need a serious dose of teenage hormones.
